Finland offers a favorable data center climate thanks to a variety of factors:
- Geographical location with low risk for natural disasters e.g. no winds of hurricane-force or volcanic activity
- Competitively priced internet connections and other connectivity services
- Legislative transparency, zero currency risk and EU compliance
- One of the lowest energy prices in Europe, stable grid and good green energy availability
